THIRD EYE PICKS OF THE WEEK: STRANGE ATTRACTORS HC — Here’s one that we sneak-peek debuted at our Free Comic Book Day signing last week, and that I’m really excited to see on the shelves this week!
This is going to be one of those killer graphic novels that you’re going to see all over the Top 10 lists at the end of 2013, and we’re telling you now, Third Eye Faithful: make sure you snag yourself a copy of this gorgeous book as soon as ya can; cause it’s a must-have.
In order to set himself up with a cushy job post-graduation, Heller Wilson takes on a subject for his PhD thesis at the behest of his advisor.
This leads him to meet with Dr. Spencer Brownfield, a disgraced Columbia professor who spent his career researching Complex Theory, the idea that one can use mathematics to predict the large-scale outcomes caused by minute changes in environment.
At first, Dr. Brownfield seems crazy, but Heller soon discovers that the doctor’s research might be the only thing keeping New York City from destroying itself from the inside out.
Both in terms of storytelling and artwork, this book is pure quality comics all over the place. A great, compelling plot with gorgeous art that compliments the storytelling perfectly; combined with the incredible design and layout of the book by Archaia, who’ve wowed us with their MOUSE GUARD series, among others.
We highly recommend snagging Strange Attractors this Wednesday, and giving it a shot. It’s a big, pretty hardcover with a powerful story inside.. and it’s only $19.99.
Trust us: you can’t go wrong with this one.
